The Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of Monimitchelle Sports Facility company, Ebi Egbe has vowed not to rest on his oars until he fulfils his dream to put to an end the presence of poor football-playing pitches in the country.
The hybrid synthetic pitch construction expert, made this disclosure in a brief chat with journalists in Lagos, when he bagged double awards from the organisers of the prestigious City Merit Awards and from your high flying WhatsApp platform, Nigeria Sports Centre (NSC).
“My dream is to eradicate bad pitches in Nigeria, begins the confident hybrid pitch construction guru.
“My company is 100% Nigerian with our headquarters in Bayelsa state, which is why we are determined and very committed to bring to an end the era of bad pitches in the country.
Egbe, who spoke with so much passion and zest, revealed that his company does not compromise when it comes to building pitches, which according to him is the secret they are first amongst equals in the challenging industry.
“We don’t compromise when it comes to building pitches and this has been the secret of our success story, he said.
“The business is an end-users game. This a lot of company’s do not know, which is why users complain when eventually their job is ready and tested.
Egbe, who is also a players’ intermediary agent, used the opportunity to speak on the commendation his job got from Super Eagles manager, Gernot Rohr during the Enyimba versus Abia Warriors game at the Enyimba stadium.
“My job got a big thumb up from Gernot Rohr when he watched the Enyimba against Abia Warriors encounter at the Enyimba stadium that I constructed the playing tough.
“The pitches I make are world-class and therefore can compare with any pitch in the world.
He, however, bemoaned poor maintenance culture by Nigerians opining that if that can change, many things can get better.
“Maintenance is our greatest undoing. I strongly believe that if that can be worked on a lot of things will change in this country.
“I have been invited to Burkina Faso and Cameroun to build pitches which is a testament that we are doing well,” he concluded.
